Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every skateboarder wants to have the hottest graphics on his or her board.But the wear and tear of the skater's grind naturally makes it difficult to keep your graphics bold and dynamic. Thus were skateboard stickers born. <P>Virtually every skateboarder has a sticker collection of some sort, either on a bedroom door or on the refrigerator or in a shoe box. Stickers became extremely important in the late eighties and early nineties when many smaller, skater-owned companies emerged. Thanks to the low cost and ease with which they can be produced, stickers are an easy way to get brands noticed. Virtually every board graphic is also available in sticker form, and with graphics only having a shelf life of around six months, and hundreds of companies and thousands of boards available, it's easy to see why they are so collectable. <P>"Skateboard Stickers" celebrates the use of stickers in skateboarding. Showing the full spectrum of skate sticker art, it brings together over 350 of the most memorable stickers ever produced. From Wes Humpston and Dogtown's stickers in the 1970s to Birdo at Consolidated's 'Don't Do It' sticker campaign, the book features the best designs, selected by pro skateboarders past and present, skate artists and other influential figures in the skate industry around the world. It includes sticker related stories and articles from skaters and artists, such as the story of Death skateboards or Jim Phillips' legendary Screaming Hand sticker logo for Speed Wheels Santa Cruz, as well as a look at the sticker-making process, and quotes from skateboarders describing what stickers mean to them personally. Contributors include Wes Humpston, Bucky Lasek, Sean Goff, Steve Alba, Andy Howell, Mark McKee, Jim Phillips, and Mike Vallely. <P>Bonus feature: each book is packaged with a new skateboard sticker, commissioned especially for this volume.

Synopsis:

Celebrating the use of stickers in skateboarding, this book collects over 350 of the most memorable examples of skateboard art.
